Hip hop videos are all about extravagance and expensive cars. While all rappers stroll in some pretty slick cars on television, have you ever wondered how many of them actually own one in real life? Every hip hop music video in history features at least one vintage or rare car. However, most of those finely tuned and dream worthy rides do not belong to the artists themselves. They are merely a part of the eye-catching props. Nevertheless, there are certain hip hop moguls that own some pretty expensive wheels. They do not show off just one, but an entire collection of supercars.
Besides a house, a car is the ultimate acquisition in life. Hip hop moguls cannot complain about their paycheck, which is why they indulge in shopping sprees that are a little different than what the average person is accustomed to, often ending in a new expensive ride in their spacious garage. While Rolls Royces and Chevrolets are already famous among rappers, not all can boast about owning a Maybach or a Lamborghini, which is why we invite you to have a look at the 10 biggest car collections of the hip hop industry.
